US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Futures flat after data, S&P negative
NEW YORK, April 4
NEW YORK, April 4 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures turned flat on Thursday, with the S&P 500 dropping into negative territory after data showed an unexpected rise in weekly jobless claims.
S&P 500 futures fell 0.2 point but remained above fair value, a formula that evaluates pricing by taking into account interest rates, dividends and time to expiration on the contract. Dow Jones industrial average futures and Nasdaq 100 futures were both unchanged.
